End of Journaling through January

This post covers days 30 and 31 of my Journaling through January series.

Wow, I can't believe that January is over! It has been such a great experience writing this Journaling through January series. There were a few days that I didn't get to post, but I always loved it when I took the time to write about the prompt for the day. If you've stuck with me through the whole series, I really appreciate it! It's been a great month, and I'm looking forward to February, where you'll get to see me experiment with a few different kinds of posts!

To wrap things up, here are the two final prompts for days 30 and 31.

Day 30
We've written about the Lord's blessings in our lives. Now write about how you can be a blessing to others.
  • Having a happy attitude. Being around people who are happy and have a bright outlook on life always make me feel happier. I hope to have the same effect on those around me.
  • Always be willing to serve others.
  • Give encouragement to those who need it.
Day 31
What about our Lord will you remember this year? What reminder will you carry with you about the character of Jesus?

Jesus taught us to become as little children, "for of such is the kingdom of heaven." This year, I want to learn more about what this really means, and how to apply it. I think part of it means that we need to be humble enough to be taught and to be obedient. It means to have an innocent mind and a pure heart. I'm still learning, though, and I have the perfect companion to help me remember what I've learned so far. I literally carry him around in my arms for hours every day. :)

  1. How cool, I look forward to see what you do this month...I will be following!

  2. Thanks very much! I really hope you like this next month's posts!

  3. Personally, it seems essential to have the influence of children in our lives, whether through our own family or associating with children of other families. Caring, teaching, mentoring, observing, and most importantly loving children are priceless opportunities in our effort to become better people. I learn so much from my children!
